comment Is it possible to move a front door?
i downvoted this answer because it seems (to me, at least) unnecessarily patronizing. humor does not, unfortunately, translate well over the internet.

comment How can I prepare my home to be vacant for a month?
I haven't used a randomized timer, but have set up regular timers a few times, and they have been fairly easy to set up and use. Friends have used randomized timers, but I haven't really asked them about the process, though... I've assumed that the steps are about similar.

comment How can I safely get rid of the odor caused by EasyOff oven cleaner?
I used the same product a couple of years ago, but the smell dissipated after a couple of hours or so, and didn't even need the oven to run. Are you sure you followed all instructions, and cleaned up all residue?

@keshlam, if you would covert your comment to an answer, i'll be happy to accept it. your comment partly put me on the right track to figure this out.

comment Putting together a tool set for children 8-11
volunteering with scouting myself, i heartily recommend a set of tiny carving knives - exacto or other brands. really helps to pass those long july days at the tomahawk summer camp, whittling.

comment How can I remove humidity from a room without a dehumidifier?
A couple of things: not all mold is dangerous, and not using any sort of active air movers also has the potential to spread spores anywhere. Even something as trivial as OP's cat walking around will help move air.

comment What is the black adhesive being applied between the veneer bricks?
Text in your posted image says it: "pointing mortar for bricks."

comment How can I determine what's behind a wall?
drywall walls will sound hollow if you aren't knocking directly on the studs. doesn't mean that there's a void on the other side. your best bet is to open the wall up and see what's going on. drywall can be replaced for reasonably cheap, and having a secret room is immeasurably fun (unless it holds corpses etc., of course)

comment What could have caused the hot and cold water to stop running in one sink, while all others are fine?
Maybe both pipes broke / burst at the same time? Unlikely in all probability, but something to check perhaps?

comment Why does my hot water smell like wood smoke?
@keshlam, it's a gas heater, and our water comes from the city, who (i think) in turn source it from nearby lakes.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's just the hot water. We don't have any wood-burning appliances, and the furnace has been turned off for a few months now.

comment What can I do about slow running water in my Whirlpool refrigerator?
It may also be that your water inflow to the refrigerator is slow by itself, and the filter only ads to that... May be this combination's causing the slow flow you're seeing.
